Services for Providers
Market trends toward greater provider risk sharing and value-based contracting offer providers many new opportunities at the cost of new financial risks. Managing that risk is essential for providers' success in the emerging payment landscape, so that you can focus on practicing medicine. AAS can provide assistance understanding, monitoring, and managing risk to currently or potentially risk-bearing providers, including hospitals and medical groups.
